For Large Treatment Areas: Up to 10 Days
If you’re treating your abdomen, back, chest, or thighs, it’s recommended you take up to 5 to 7 days off of work. This is because your body will experience more trauma during the liposuction surgery, so it may take a little while longer to recover than if you had a smaller area treated.
The only exception to this rule is if you work a physically intensive job, in which case, we recommend taking two full weeks off to recover from liposuction.
You should be ready for normal activities within three to four weeks after your surgery. Dr. Bull will work closely with you to ensure that your post-op recovery goes according to plan.
